Nashville SC’s Hany Mukhtar was named the Player of Matchday. The reigning MLS MVP scored a hat trick in a 3-1 win over St. Louis CITY SC, his second of the season.
Shaq Moore joins Mukhtar on the team of the season. Moore was instrumental in Nashville’s defense, and created two chances, including a late pass to Hany Mukhtar that should have resulted in a fourth goal.
Jacob Shaffelburg and Dax McCarty earned spots on the bench. Shaffelburg drew the penalty for Mukhtar’s second goal, and McCarty set up the third with a fantastic heel flick. Nashville SC are back in action on Wednesday in Montreal.
